I have pledged myself, and because I can swear by none other higher than myself, I have sworn by myself that I will never leave you or forsake you. I have pledged that I am working in you to do the will of God. There is nothing or anyone who can pluck you out of my hand. This covenant is a better one with better promises. I have said that Christ was slain from the foundation of the world, and he is the surety for the default of sin. He was made sin so that you might become the righteousness of God in Him. Nothing remains to be done. I enforce the blessing daily, and daily I load you with benefits. My mercies are new each day. All this I say to remind you that I am for you and not against you.
Tanzania: How can I overlook you? You are lovely. I come to put my finger under your chin. Lift up your countenance to behold the King of Kings. I extend my scepter to you, I extend grace and mercy to you. Didn’t you know that I would never let you fall? Take this to heart… those who are for you are more than those against you. I have paid the bride price, and the dowry is laid up in store. Will a man sell himself into slavery to free his love? And who will lay down his life for an unfaithful woman? Stop marching away, and turn back, return to your first love. Let the passion of youth be reclaimed and embraced. The jewel in your nose has not bound you, for I have redeemed you and you are bought with the price of blood. Put off the scarlet, and don white. I have shining raiment for you, and you will be clothed with power from on high. Only radiant, only radiant will do. As the dawn comes, it’s time to call to the brothers and sisters, “arise,” and turn to the beasts of the field and utter, “stay.” I give you this charge.
